It’s official: The Wolfpack will come howling back next spring. Warner Bros. president Jeff Robinov announced yesterday that The Hangover‘s three-quel will hit theaters on May 24, 2013. Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis are all set to reprise their roles in the new film — as is Todd Phillips, who’s both directing and co-writing the movie with Craig Mazin, his Hangover II collaborator. In the release, Phillips refers to Part III as the franchise’s final chapter, adding, “It will be a fitting conclusion to our three-part opera of mayhem, despair, and bad decisions.” READ FULL STORY »

I walked into The Muppets this weekend completely unsure of what to expect. For the past few weeks — save EW’s cover story (woo for self promotion) — I’d generally avoided any and all stories, blurbs, and clips that threatened to spoil the movie and its surprises for me. When I’m excited about a movie — and, if I’m being honest, there aren’t that many I get excited about every year — there is no greater sin than spoiling it for me. (TV is, obviously, a different story.)
My patience was rewarded this weekend when I walked into the unspoiled glory of The Muppets and was treated to a number of great cameos, including one from [Spoiler alert, obviously...] READ FULL STORY »

Stand Up To Cancer — the initiative established three years ago to help sponsor cutting-edge cancer research — has teamed up with the folks at Star Wars for a special line of Star Wars-themed SU2C t-shirts called “Use the Force for Good.”

Comedy review: Zach Galifianakis rocks with Queens of the Stone Age jabs, bits about 9/11 and Sarah Palin
Dear Rock Stars: You might want to think twice before asking Zach Galifianakis for freebies. The star of The Hangover movies gave Queens of the Stone Age a little more than they asked when they called his manager for free tickets to his sold-out stand-up gig at Largo at the Coronet in Los Angeles Wednesday night. They got prime seats in Row F and a whole lock of mockery to boot. “I don’t know you f—-ing guys!” the comedian yelled at the band, seated in the all-ages crowd of 270 fans, which ranged from hoodie-wearing hipsters to bearded, bespectacled burly men to indie chicks and comedy nerds. “Can we get tickets?” he mocked in a whiny voice as Queens of the Stone Age members Josh Homme, Troy Van Leeuwen, and Michael Shuman laughed on. “Let me Google them and see who the f— they are! I don’t know you motherf—ers!” READ FULL STORY »
The new, summery trailer for HBO’s Bored to Death (returning Oct. 10) contains no scoop, no teasers, no real insight as to what season 3 has in store for us. But here are five gritty Coney Island delights that Jason, Zach & Ted’s Excellent Adventure does offer:
5. Beastie Boys soundtrack
1. Ted Danson drinking a martini on a carousel
What more do you really want out of summer?
Never mind the grumbling haters and the 35 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. With The Hangover Part II continuing to slash and burn its way through the box office ($384 million worldwide and counting), a third trip down amnesia lane for the Wolfpack is clearly inevitable. In the new issue of Rolling Stone, cover boy Zach Galifianakis confirms, “They want to do a Hangover III… I’m getting fricking phone calls already.” And he doesn’t stop there. In the interview, Galifianakis seems to spill the beans on the third film’s storyline as well, suggesting that the plot for The Hangover Part III could center on his demented manchild Alan escaping from a mental institution with a little help from his friends.
